I'm just starting work on my Boba Fett costume et all, and I've come to a crossroads: I love the weathering on the ESB Hero bucket, but as for the rest of Boba, I think I prefer the bit of color variation in the RotJ costume. Since I decided to start working on a costume, joining the 501st when it's all done seems like a good way to let this hobby benefit others (by doing some of the charity work when it/I can), not to mention meeting other costumers out there! I'm pretty unfamiliar with the 501st, though.
Would any one know if having the ESB helmet with the RotJ costume prevent me from eventually joining? It seems pretty minor to me, but I'm also new to the costuming community, so I don't know the strictness of it all.... If so, I may just do the entire Fett in ESB, because I love the look of the ESB helmet that much. Thanks!
